Comic: It's Mac-to-School Time

the macbook air is the cheapest and it has ports, but the screen is ANCIENT.

the 12 inch macbook is tiny, but it costs more and only has one usb-c port

it only has one port and it costs more?! welcome to dongletown: population usb-c.

i thought apple was supposed to be simpler! it is! but you must embrace the apple philosophy.

whats that? spend twice as much and get a macbook pro.

  • Lol, I went MacBook Air! It's not perfect, but the price sure was and you'd/Apple'd have never got me to switch at $999+ Now that i have one, i could see myself plopping down some serious dough later, but for a first Mac, it's got to be cheap. I got mine from Bestbuy on a student sale for $650 Now that i have one i can see myself investing a really awesome iMac in the future, but the Air had everything i needed including support for all the accessories i purchased for other Windows machines over the years. I didn't need to also upgrade all of that too.
